Thanks for visiting my website! It’s an honor to serve as our community’s voice in the General Assembly, and I intend to lead with the highest level of honesty and integrity. Our district covers all of Sullivan County and portions of Vigo, Greene, Knox and Daviess counties.
I believe and will support legislation that creates a smaller government, promotes strong family values and protects the sanctity of life. Since I will address many issues this upcoming session, my website is a great way to keep you up-to-date on everything that I’m working on at the Statehouse; it’s truly a one-stop shop for all constituent and media needs.
As always, please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions, comments or concerns. I’m here to serve.
Thank you and God Bless!
